I dunno why one would want to keep it around either, i was just added a
bit of information for Jason if he hadn't allready known yet, Postfix
also provides a sendmail binary so you don't have to change _anything_
(which like i said, includes configuration, using /usr/bin/sendmail like
you would normally, etc :)

Anyways, no need for a flame war, i think we all can agree that _bough_
postfix and qmail are very good choices when it comes to an alternative to
sendmail, which you use, pretty well comes down to personal preference..

That's the beauty of GNU/Linux/Unix... you actually have a choice, but
not just a choice, very good alternate choice(s) =)
